Eight Energy Bars worth Making at Home

The wall of energy bars being sold in just about every grocery
store is pretty astonishing. The problem I have with a lot of them
is their highly processed ingredient lists. Also, the ones that
have short, recognizable ingredient lists, often have a damp,
strange texture – seemingly dates smashed with other stuff into
an unappetizing looking log. These homemade energy bars aren’t as
convenient, but they’re arguably much better. Here are some
favorites – a mix of baked, no-bake, a range of simple to more
elaborate.

1.
Savory DIY Power Bars

Before we dive into slightly sweeter versions of homemade power
bars – have a look at these. If you can imagine sort-of savory
Rice Crispy treats made with crumbled kale chips, toasted walnuts,
and black olives, that’s the ballpark. Also, cut into tiny
bit-sized squares, these make a cool addition to an appetizer
spread.

3. 4
o’clock No-Bake Energy Bites

These got me through many afternoon slumps over at our studio. I
like the ratio of oats to nut butter here, and the addition of chia
seeds. Plus they’re no-bake, delicious, and people loooove them.
Use any nut butter you have on hand. Get the
